Team India will play a total of 19 matches over the course of three months before departing for the IPL 2023. There will be 6 T20Is, 9 ODIs, and 4 Tests among the 19 matches. The tests will be included in the World Test Championship. ODIs, on the other hand, will serve as a warm-up for the ODI World Cup in 2023.
